Fantasy prospect watch

With Kris Bryant, Addison Russell and Yasmany Tomas already being called up to the majors, I wanted to take a look at several elite prospects that should be called up shortly. Francisco Lindor has had an iffy start to the 2015 season in triple-A. Through his first 15 games, he was hitting just .196. However, […]

Week one

Aside from Paul Goldschmidt, A.J. Pollock, Mark Trumbo and maybe Jake Lamb, I dislike just about every member of the Diamondbacks’ 25-man roster. However, this team has three excellent buy-low candidates sitting in Reno (its triple-A affiliate) or on a trainer’s table. By now you have probably heard of Yasmany Tomas, the 68.5 million-dollar man. If […]

Spring Training tidbits

With the 2015 regular season now upon us, I want to take one final look at a number of important happenings from Spring Training. Although the scores of the games do not matter, the extreme performances, call-ups/send downs and injuries do. Fantasy baseball owners know not to worry too much about Spring Training statistics, but […]

My first 2015 draft

My 10-team AL/NL head-to-head league had its draft last week, and I was picking fifth. The 6×6 league has BBs and QSs as the final two categories, and you play nine pitchers (it could be nine SPs and zero RPs, four SPs and five RPs, etc.). The first four picks went as expected with Mike […]

Jumbos drop two of three over spring break after hot start

The No. 11 women’s lacrosse team headed into spring break with a 4-0 record, but the Jumbos fell to 5-2 following their three-game stint over the past week and a half. On Saturday, Tufts traveled to Hartford, Conn. to take on 6-1 Trinity. The conference-rival Bantams — No. 2 in the country — have been […]

Starting pitcher sleepers and busts

The Brewers’ Mike Fiers leads off my list of starting pitcher sleepers for the 2015 season. He had a tremendous minor league career and a solid rookie season in 2012 before he imploded in 2013. Last season, the Brewers’ No. 4 starter was lights out at both the triple-A and major league levels. I am […]

Tufts proves ice hockey program is on the upswing

In the final 13 games of Tufts’ 2013-14 season, the team went 1-11-1, including a 10-game losing streak. The Jumbos lost a talented group of seniors and would only have inexperienced goalies on the roster for the 2014-15 season. Yet, by the end of the year, Tufts was two goals away from reaching the finals of […]

Outfield sleepers and busts

Due to the sheer volume of viable fantasy outfielders, I will only be discussing several sleepers and busts for your upcoming drafts. Jorge Soler has been discussed for a long time in fantasy circles, but he belongs on my sleeper list because ESPN has him listed as their No. 38 outfielder. I have him ranked […]

Tufts to face Amherst in NESCAC semifinals

After Tufts (9-14-2) shocked the NESCAC world with its 2-1 upset over top-seeded Trinity, the team will move on to face the 19-4-2 NESCAC No. 2 Amherst Lord Jeffs in the conference semifinals. On Saturday, Amherst prevented an upset from Middlebury by defeating the tournament’s seventh seed 3-0. Middlebury surprisingly outplayed Amherst for the first 30 minutes […]

Fantasy Baseball Closers

Craig Kimbrel, Aroldis Chapman, and Greg Holland are clearly the position’s elite, but none of them will wind up on my teams this spring simply because of how early people tend to draft premium closers. The aforementioned three will bring you excellent ratios and at least 90 strikeouts, but I would rather take a second […]
